of central europe, particularly hungary, east germany and poland from 1944 to 1946, they tried to empty out the universities of historians and philosophers. and they were pretty effective at that. they got them to go west. as we know. or they exiled them in some way internally. in central europe, eastern europe as well. they encouraged more science and engineers, which is fifpblete but they weren't in a creative environment where they could do good work. democracy, as again the founders would have known this, you can't just be a science and engineer in a democracy to look way over the cliff to the mountains and beyond. so i'm very disturbed now to say that one great state university is talking about creating incentives for people to do science and engineering as undergraduates as against in effect creating disincentives for people to do humanities. you have to have people who can look beyond the current crisis. that also has been part of the american middle class, new ideas. >> i agree with that. i would like to see more of an emphasis on the science and math. i guess -- we are going to in
